Kanye West - Kanye West Defends 2009 Mtv Vmas Stage Invasion

Subscribe To:

Kanye West is still refusing to out-and-out apologise for his stage invasion at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, insisting he still thinks Beyonce should have won the prize for Female Video of the Year at the prizegiving.

The rapper interrupted winner Taylor Swift's acceptance speech and took the mic from her to make his feelings known before handing it back to the stunned country music star and returning to his seat in the audience.

West has since apologised to Swift for ruining her first Vmas win, but he still insists he did the right thing.

Speaking to Los Angeles DJ Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday morning (29Oct13), defiant West recalled the moment that has lived on in infamy and stated, "When I (went) up onstage and I do whatever, I'm looking like, 'Am I the only one here that's not crazy?' There still hasn't been a better video... than a Beyonce video.

"That's what people hated me the most for - the perception: 'This doesn't look good. That doesn't look good'. But I'm not here to try to be the most likeable guy on the planet. I'm here to make things easier for people with the creativity I have."

But he admits he did feel for Swift, who was left speechless and clearly upset after the rapper robbed her of her big moment.

He adds, "I talked to her right before she was going to do a song based on it (incident) and I tried to get her on the phone (right after) and they wouldn't get her on the phone.

"You know what? I would not want some crazy drunk rock star cutting my daughter off, also. But my daughter would 100 per cent also be like, 'Yes, Beyonce did have the best video'. That's what my daughter would do."
